I've been absent for a bit. April was difficult. Murphy came a knocking (Murphy's law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong). I do not like blogging when I'm in a "whoa is me" state.

For your reading pleasure here's an April recap:
Here in Michigan it rained and rained and rained and rained.
The basement flooded. We don't have a finished basement thank goodness but three to four inches of water downstairs is never a good thing. I hurt my back quite badly trying to take care of the mess. We did get the water out, along with tons of ruined stuff. Then two days later the furnace decided that it hadn't liked sitting in  all that water and stopped working. We had a cold house for a few days until the furnace guy came. It took him about 3 minutes to fix the problem but we still had to pay him (obviously). Our front door meanwhile decided to break. It was a little issue but still, please can every bit of our house rebel all at once?!?! After a week of my back getting progressively worse I decided that I needed to see the chiropractor. My health insurance does not include chiropractic work. Yep, another nice expense to throw onto the April pile. She said it will be a slow healing process. Yay me! Additionally our van has started to make a scary clunky noise while turning. I'm scared to even find out what this new expense will be. In April I ended up using the credit card. I feel like poop.

It is now May and I'm hoping Murphy and his shenanigans have left the building.


  1. What an unfortunate series of events! I hope May proves to be more positive. Come on karma!

  2. Look on the bright side. You have paid your debt down enough by this point that these things are just little setbacks. Hope May is uneventful ;)

  3. May is just bound to be better! You'll be back on track soon, for sure. Warm thoughts,

  4. Yikes, sorry you had such a long month. I hope May is nicer to you and you feel better soon!

  5. Don't be hard on yourself! This too shall pass! We did not do very well in April either.
